New Living Translation
"But I will not destroy them all," says the LORD. "For just as good grapes are found among a cluster of bad ones (and someone will say, 'Don't throw them all away--some of those grapes are good!'), so I will not destroy all Israel. For I still have true servants there.

But though the people of Israel are as numerous as the sand of the seashore, only a remnant of them will return. The LORD has rightly decided to destroy his people.
Yet for my own sake and for the honor of my name, I will hold back my anger and not wipe you out.
